Curious? Here are some of the highest net worth of the most followed celebrities in the industry

George Lucas | $8  billion

The director of Star Wars and the Indiana Jones franchise, George Lucas, is a huge name in Hollywood now. What we see, however, is just the tip of the iceberg. Because like everyone else, he also had his share of failures. For example, his film Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB was a commercial failure, though it received critical acclaim. His next film, Star Wars, became his crowning glory and was a huge success despite trouble in production.

Over the years, Lucas has accumulated wealth from his excellent money management skills and his earnings from his films. In 1973, Fox offered Lucas an increased salary for Star Wars but he requested to retain the merchandising rights and the rights to the sequels instead. While it seemed like a good deal for the studio then, it ultimately became a better deal for Lucas, who earned so much from the sequels.
